Emergen-C

Anyone try this product for an energy boost ? I did google but haven't found a satisfactory review on it.

I have used Emergen-C, and like it. That being said, Alacer, the parent company, also makes a product called ElectroMix, a similar product that is a balanced elecrolyte package to add to water. I have used both, for running, working out and hiking...any strenuous activity that requires rehydration (nice for Burning Man, too). Of the two, I prefer ElectroMix, but I also supplement Vitamin C daily, 2,000-3,000mg. Good products.

It gives me heartburn. I gave mine to a friend who is a vitamin c freak.

For an energy boost, I take B Complex 50 every morning.

Same here! One sip of the stuff and I get heartburn, which is not normal for me. I also take B complex and find it works a lot better than Vit C for me.

My friend is a health food nut...They say it's a very low quality vitamin (I trust them, so I choose not to research that statement)...They say either buy a quality supplement from a health store or drink more premium OJ... :)
